Shout-Outs to Amazing Bootcampers!

January 17, 2011

January has started off with a bang everyone, and I almost got so busy that I forgot to recognize a couple of our campers!  We have several people who are hitting some big milestones!

Number one, congratulations to Liz Page for completing ONE YEAR of bootcamp!  Good job Liz; she is the second camper ever to complete one whole year of bootcamp!

Also, we have a few campers who have surpassed their 9-MONTH mark and are going towards the 1 YEAR milestone!  Congratulations to Deb Segura, Kate Lemond, Mary Eberle, Beth McRorie, Elizabeth Roop, and Teresa Braswell for completing at least 9 months of bootcamp!

I’m also excited to recognize a few campers who have completed at least 6 MONTHS of bootcamp, and it has been such a pleasure to get to know you all!  Great job Carmen Rios, Betty Booth, Stacey Clements, John Spainhour, Brenda Peters, and Leah Daughtry for completing at least 6 months of bootcamp!

Lastly, congratulations to Krish Kesavarum and Donna Whinnery for completing at least 3 MONTHS of bootcamp! (Donna I could be off, and it could be closer to 6, so let me know if I’m wrong!  With me or not, I know you’re training like an animal. J)

Good job everyone!  Keep up the good work!  It’s that kind of consistency that will continue to give you better and better results.  Your fitness will gradually build, and you’ll see your body gradually changing over time.  Thanks so much for your support.  It has been such a pleasure to get to know all of you over the past year!
